I wonder if this story had any influence on Carl Jung s shadow theory that we each have a shadow self to embody our negative traits as Henry Jekyll uite literally does with his alter ego Edward Hyde Stevenson had surely studied Descartes philosophy Ren Descartes and his theory of mindbody duality has an awful lot to answer for Our whole Western world view tends towards dividing the world into two camps us them man nature church state those for us those against us And life is so much complex than that We know from studies of dementia Alzheimer s disease that physical exercise is protective for the brain an organ which we tend to think of as somehow separate from the rest of our physical body because it is perceived as the home of the mind But it is a body organ nonetheless and reuires the same physical care as the rest of the physical self to my mind invalidating the mindbody separation Jekyll takes this dichotomy to an extreme becoming two separate people sharing one body And because life is complicated than an eitheror choice Jekyll soon loses control of the process awakening to find that he has degenerated in Hyde without the assistance of the initial potion Like any drug taker he soon finds that he reuires increased doses to achieve the same end Surprising how much is packed into this slim little volume published as a shilling shocker

Robert Louis Stevenson É 9 Read Read Þ E-book, or Kindle E-pub É Robert Louis Stevenson Read The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Other Tales of Terror ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Entrato ormai a far parte dell’iconografia popolare Lo strano caso del Dr Jekyll e Mr Hyde oltre a essere una esplicita metafora della eterna lotta tra il bene e il male è soprattutto un attacco che Stevenson ha voluto sferrare contro la repressiva e puritana l. IntroductionHorace Walpole s The Castle of Otranto was originally published on Christmas Eve 1764 and would serve as a primary origin in holiday publication It s also considered one of the first gothic horror stories Traditionally the genre was characterized by settings in or around ancient castles or monasteries deep in the gloomy forests and involving proud Italian or Spanish nobles and the machinations of corrupt ecclesiastics This was a uickly growing literary trend Some willing participants include Anne Radcliffe s The Mysteries of Udolpho Matthew Lewis Melmoth the Wanderer by Charles Maturin and much later Bram Stoker s Dracula All of these works and many others featured Walpole s signature setting and era which almost always took place in Catholic countries Robert Lewis Stevenson however changed the face of the horror genre He accomplished this feat by incorporating many uniue traits but two things that proved most effective were 1 modernizing his horrific tale set in what was then present day London and 2 he veered away from the countryside and allowed the action to unravel in the city With its urban surroundings all the action intrigue and mystery had a chance to earnestly breathe perhaps for the first time and took on a menacing shape all its own In this way it feels all too real Stevenson supplanted the reader in his world his locale You re right there alongside Utterson Jekyll and Hyde Also prevalent and valid here are adeuate doses of psychology thus amplifying the suspense and fodder for many stimulating conversations a sprinkling of philosophy science religion two subjects that ordinarily oppose each other but somehow Stevenson made work and a decently developed cast Combine all these stellar ingredients and you have the formula for a cataclysmic masterpiece One that only Stevenson could have written Thematically the author showcased his raw talent and maturity as he continued to delve deep into ideas he s begun to explore in The Body Snatcher and Olalla Like the latter a largely metaphorical tale of vampirism that emphasizes forms of atavistic forms Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde marked a return to similar themes The masks we wear to conceal our insecurities and sin are very clear here as is Stevenson s passion for his art It went deeper than that we were all startled by this transformation as if a man had risen from the dead A mere two years prior to what would become his most beloved novel he wrote The Body Snatcher therein beginning to explore the transformation of self personal identity and what it meant to lead double lives In Jekyll and Hyde however his vision was fully realized and developed his craft honed 5 stars The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde This was a re read for me I first read it in high school but recalled very little of its details The bare minimum really and what I did remember proved unreliable So when the buddy read came up Stepheny Holly Anne Tadiana Jeff Delee and myself I was all for it and greatlylooked forward to it Thanks again guys it was loads of fun and proved very rewarding The short novel is presented in many ways as a legal case as the narrator Mr Utterson is a lawyer propositioned by Mr Enfield The two couldn t be different but they re united in their desperate attempt to ascertain the whereabouts of their friend Henry Jekyll MD As they reluctantly plumb the mysteries of the case peculiar and disturbing evidence especially in light of its publication date came to the forefront forcing them to actdespite their hesitation Because doing so meant acknowledging the presence of evil in the world and if one could become infected like a victim of Captain Trips then they might also be just as susceptible As are we all I think that s what Stevenson was trying to instill We re all capable of sin of great evil Lesser men fall prey to its appealing nature It takes stronger men to lead a virtuous life Contrary to what some may believe there is no such thing as being either good or evil The world is rarely black and white The psychological aspects as well as the psychotic made for very compelling reading All of the above was a lot of fun Stevenson s stunning way with words impressed me very much and immensely added to my overall experience The psychology of its Soho London setting however is something of a rare gem I d never read anything uite like it It s thrice as fascinating See for yourself A great chocolate coloured pall lowered over heaven but the wind was continually charging and routing these assembled vapours so that as the cab crawled from street to street Mr Utterson beheld a marvelous number of degrees and hues of twilight As the cab drew up before the address indicated the fog lifted a little and showed him a dingy street a gin palace a low French eating house a shop for the retail of penny numbers and twopenny salads many ragged children huddled in the doorways and many women of many different nationalities passing out key in hand to have a morning glass and the next moment the fog settled down again on that part as brown as umber and cut him off from his blackguardly surroundings The narrative itself is somewhat uniue for eight of the ten chapters are shown from Utterson s beautiful and haunted eyes The penultimate from Dr Lanyon s POV and the conclusion from Jekyll himself Tt had to be written that way too due to the way in which Chapter Eight ends The novel is brilliant on many many levels Unfortunately I found the ending somewhat disappointing and anti climatic view spoilerSeeing the events unfolding from Lanyon and Jekyll was interesting even fascinating at times Especially the latter Like I said though I think the conclusion itself is anti climatic and uite poignant I appreciate the fact that it isn t a happily ever after type resolution A good horror story should rarely if ever feel happy Maybe my expectations were too high but I wanted much A significant and mind blowing confrontation between Jekyll and Hyde reminiscent of a classic X Men battle or something but sadly that never happens Admittedly you do see Jekyll earnestly struggling with the nefarious parts of himself a battle of right and wrong of wills but it s all internal The only external portion is in the death itselfRegarding the rather abrupt and strange change and sunseuent demise of Dr Lanyon and Dr Jekyll to an extent there are some interesting theories that I thought I might share I have brought on myself a punishment and a danger that I cannot name recalls and would certainly bring to mind in Utterson friend of down going men language associated with two conditions which preoccupied medics and moralists at the time syphilis and the supposed pathological effects of masturbation both of which were believed to be retribution for carnal indulgence hide spoiler
